January 2nd, 2004. One of the best days of my life! I remember the night before we were married a snow storm came in and covered the Valley in a blanket of fresh snow. That morning everything was so white and wintery. I remember getting the best nights sleep the night before we were married. I woke up so refreshed and ready for an amazing day. I think the temperature got up to about 40 degrees that day. It was the warmest day of the year for about 2 month. Even with the snowy weather we were still able to arrive at the temple on time. The sealing was a blur to me, I just remember when I was supposed to say yes I said it so quiet that Brian could barley hear me. After we were married, and we came outside the temple to take the “Famous” group picture on the stairs. The snow on the temples roof was melting and falling onto all off us! I LOVED my white cape, it was so warm and comfortable. I felt like a snow princess. The day was perfect with no hiccups. I wish it all didn’t go so fast, that day flew by. But everything was perfect….
Wow! I really can’t believe it’s been 10 years! Some days it really does feel like it was yesterday, other days it feels like we’ve been old and married for 40 years. It’s been great with a little bumps and maybe some bruises along the way. Between the 2 of us we have accomplished 4 degrees, moved 6 times, created 4 beautiful kids, and countless races. We were patient and found our dream home, that is just so perfect for our not so small family. We’ve had so many experiences supporting or being supported in all our many callings in the church. We’ve had trials that we didn’t see coming, some we did see. But stuck together and supported each other in whatever the Lord gave us. We continue to keep the spirit close to us as we raise our 4 kids in such a crazy world. I truly can say being married to Brian has almost been what I thought I was getting into 10 years ago. He keeps us on our toes with everything he is involved with. I sure love this man. I love the humble beginning we started from and where were at today. He’s worked hard and still works hard to provide for our family. Here’s to 10 years and to 50 more!
